Happy New Year!

I feel like the last blog post was more than a little rushed, so I’m here on the first, well-rested and not being squeezed from every angle, to delivery a lively “Happy New Year!” to all. 2020 is finally, FINALLY over, and I think I speak for everyone when I say good riddance. Sure a few good things happened, but the pandemic really hit everyone hard, and I find it hard to believe much else will be remembered about this year unless it holds some amazingly significant milestone in your life (marriage, had a baby, etc.)

 

That said, don’t go out celebrating just yet. As the resident bearer of bad news, it doesn’t look like most of us are going to be getting vaccinated until the middle of the year, so 2020’s negativity looks to be carrying over into a good portion of this year for many of us. I know, I know; you don’t want to hear it, and I don’t blame you. I’m just saying be safe, okay? Hopefully, it will only get better from here.

 

For brighter news, I’m happy to announce that Magi of Gaia’s Facebook page has officially gotten large enough to get it’s own, special URL: https://www.facebook.com/MagiOfGaia  I know it’s not a major event or anything, but I was happy to see it finally happen. No more hyphens and numbers. If you want to go to the website, you can find it without any issues. I’m strangely proud of this trivial thing, but I guess that means it’s not that trivial after all. Maybe I’m just easily pleased?

 

How about you? Did you stay up to celebrate the new year? Did you do anything special? I made sure to end the year AND start the year doing things I love in hopes of getting things to a positive start. Someone in my area decided to shoot off a ton of fireworks (even though it was raining???) for what seemed like hours. Hey, it’s fine by me. We can all use a little cheer after all we went through last year.

 

Though the beginning of this year will be tough, let’s all be positive and do our best to make it through this. Many of us have it harder than others, like those who need to go to food banks, those facing eviction, and those who no longer have their jobs. To those people, I give all the luck I have stored up in the hope that you find a way back to happiness.

 

Happy New Year.
